Rader chest pull

Hi all

I've read a recommendation in "BRAWN" to follow deadlifts with rader chest pull. Does anybody no what this is or have a link to how it's performed.

Cheers

    You need to find something you can grab hold of at head height,eg one of the uprights on a power rack or even a door jam,take as deep a breath as possible and try and push your chest up to the ceiling while pulling down and towards your self with your arms,if you get it right you will feel a pulling sensation in your sternum.

    I used these for a couple of years after breathing squats,to be honest i don't no if they were of any benifit,my chest did get bigger but i don't no if my ribcage did,some swear it is possible to enlarge the ribcage others say not.

    I don't believe the ribcage can be enlarged, well definately not after you have stopped growing as a child anyway. Don't follow everything you read mate as you'll never get anywhere!

    Alright alpine dude, hows the training going. I was gonna go with the 20 rep deadlifts and 10 rep squat version!!!

    AW you're right there. Ribcage enlargement does sound a bit dubious but am probably prepared to try anythin to get rid of this pigeon chest

    Would anyone care to explain what part of their brain malfunctioned when they read the words "expand your ribcage" and "[insert exercise here]?" The SKELETON is comprised of different tissue to MUSCLE and they do not react to the same stimulus in the same way!

    Ok, so that was worded too harshly and I apologise if that offended.. my point is, people need to think more carefully about what they are reading and how they apply it. Asking on the net before doing something is a great method to gain the knowlage and experinces of others, but seriously, this one didn't need to be asked.

    If you are prepared to try anything, try this whacky, radical idea:

    Bench press - 5x5, twice a week and EAT more than 4500kcals a day of clean foods.

    OK mate fair one!!!

    But would you care to expand on why you think this question did'nt need to be asked? If you look at the original question, it asked about a "rader chest pull" what it is and how it is performed. I did'nt ask about what exercises can expand the ribcage.

    In brawn he recommends this but as far as i have read, he makes no reference to how it is performed.

    So personally i don't think there was anything wrong in asking about an exercise which i had no idea about.

    an1mal111 why are you being so aggressive in your replys,its a fair enough question,there are several people who claim you can expand the cartilage inbetween the ribs,arnie,stuart mcrobert,paul kelso,bob paris to name a few,wether its possible or not who knows.

    In Brawn he tells you WHY it is to be performed. I've read it. That alone was enough to dismiss it, for me. TREBOR, it wasn't agressive, when somebody posts something that reads; "I apologise if this offends" and "I realise that was a little harsh" you can readily assume that any such statements were tounge in cheek and not to be taken literally. Also, I didn't direct the first part of my post at anyone in particular..
